Children's Bookmark Contest

This spring, design a bookmark for Wilmette Public Library!

Starting March 20, pick up an entry form at the Youth Services desk, or download it here and print it out. Entries must be completed on the form linked below. Designs must be turned in by Monday, April 22.

Winning bookmarks will be printed and distributed at the library starting May 6, in celebration of Children's Book Week. All entries will be displayed in the Youth Services department.

  • The contest is open to kids in grades K-8. Winners will be chosen in three categories: grades K–1, grades 2–4, and grades 5–8.
  • Artwork should relate to books, reading, or libraries. Artwork must be original and completed independently by the child.
  • Contestants are limited to one entry. We request that contest entries be submitted by individual children rather than classroom teachers.
  • Art becomes the property of Wilmette Public Library.
